Iwaki FC (いわきFC, Iwaki FC) is a football (soccer) club based in Iwaki, a city in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. The club currently play in J3 League, which is the 3rd level in the Japanese football pyramid.
Iwaki FC was founded in 2012, before getting official recognition in 2013 with the creation of their homonymous corporation. The club name got more attention when Under Armour decided to join the club and support it to climb the Japanese football pyramid from the bottom. There had been a big vision behind the club, with the will of "making Iwaki the central football-city in Tohoku". In fact, a new training field opened in November 2016 and the club-house was just launched in May 2017: two central structures to rise to the top of Japanese football.
Plus, results are pushing Iwaki FC, which has won several categories in Fukushima Prefectural Football League, coming to first division: the next target is Tohoku Soccer League, while the club has even achieved their first win at National Club Team Football Championship Tournament (winning the final 9–0). Iwaki FC also debuted at Emperor's Cup in 2017 edition. After defeating Norbritz Hokkaido in the first round, they surprisingly overcame Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo for 5–2 after extra-time. They lost against Shimizu S-Pulse in the third round, but it was still a surprising run.
In the 2019 season, Iwaki FC earned promotion to the following year's JFL for the first time in history after two seasons in Tohoku Soccer League competition, with the club winning the All Japan Regional Promotion Series and as a result Iwaki was crowned champions.
In the 2021 season, Iwaki FC earned promotion to the following year's J3 League for the first time in history after two seasons in JFL competition, after finishing in first position, the team were crowned champions for their first title of fourth tier in Japan Football League.
